Violent Femmes – Hey Nonny Nonny lyrics
Beauty sat bathing by a spring where fairest shades did hide her
The winds blew calm the birds did sing the cool streams ran beside her
My wanton thoughts enticed mine eye to see what was forbidden
But better memory said "fie" so vain desire was chidden

Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonny
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonnie
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonny
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonnie

Into a slumber then I fell when fond imagination
Seemed to see but could not tell her feature or her fashion
But even as babes in dreams do smile and sometimes fall a weeping
So I awaked as wise this while as when I fell a-sleeping

Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonny
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonnie
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonny
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonnie

Say man are you down for doing something positive in the community?
No not really
Well ain't you worried about doing the right thing?
Well I don't care

Beauty sat bathing by a spring where fairest shades did hide her
The winds blew calm the birds did sing the cool streams ran beside her
My wanton thoughts enticed mine eye to see what was forbidden
But better memory said "fie" so vain desire was chidden

Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonny
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonnie
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonny
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonnie
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonny
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonnie
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonny
Hey nonny nonny oh hey nonny nonnie
